About Nefertari

Nefertari was a queen of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt, the first Great Royal Wife of Pharaoh Thutmose IV.[1] Her origins are unknown, it is likely that she was a commoner. On several depictions she and Queen Mother Tiaa are depicted as goddesses accompanying Thutmose. In the 7th year the new Great Royal Wife was Thutmose's sister Iaret; Nefertari either died or was pushed into the background when Iaret was old enough to become Thutmose's wife.[2]

She was depicted together with her husband before gods in Gizeh, on eight stelae. She was also shown on a stela found in the Luxor Temple and was mentioned on a scarab found in Gurob.[3] It is not known whether any children were born either to Nefertari or to Iaret; after Thutmose's death the next pharaoh was Amenhotep III, the son of a secondary wife called Mutemwia.
